Osram GmbH and Vishay Semiconductor GmbH Inc. have entered into an agreement covering the use of patents. On payment of a license fee, Vishay is acquiring the right to manufacture and sell LEDs for white light with conversion technology and surface-mount LEDs for high-current applications (power SMT LEDs), for which Osram hold patents. Typical applications include automotive interior lighting.

"As a result of this agreement, Vishay gains a new opportunity to expand its white LED product offering with new devices for the automotive industry," said Dieter Wunderlich, EVP of semiconductors at Vishay. "Beyond automotive, white LEDs are being designed into a wide range of signage and indicators, all of which represent additional opportunities based on the Osram technology for strengthening the Vishay visible LED product line," he added.
